Breathless 

So much has happened since our last issue: 
Platoon got the Oscar, David and Maddie 
finally got each other, Vanna got the cover 
of Playboy, Oral got his millions, 
astronomers got their first look at a 
supernova in some 300 years, and 
Commodore/ Amiga just gave the personal 
computing world the Amiga 500 and 2000! 

Of the above, we think the most 
interesting, entertaining, exciting, and 
important has to be the introduction of the 
A500. And while the A2000 has received a 
lot of press, and is undoubtedly the most 
technically exciting new personal computer, 
it is the A500 with its low price, compact 
good looks, 1/2 MEG of stanadard RAM, 
and improved functionality which has the 
greatest potential to rekindle the flames of 
personal computing, and fully establish the 
age of i 6-bit multitasking personal 
computing. At it's introduction, the 
Commodore 64 cost about $600, and 
brought serious computing power within 
the reach of millions for the first time in 
history. Now, for the same price, the 
Amiga 500 offers the consumer 8 times the 
memory, 8 times the speed, and 10 times 
the fun of the previous best deal in 
personal computing! Story and pictures on 
page IL 

INFO Hits the Big Time! 

Starting with the next issue (#15), INFO 
will be distributed nationally (and in most 
English-speaking countries) by Select 
Magazines of New York. Select is a 
GIANT in the industry handling such 



quality titles as Family Computing, Popular 
Science, and Ms. magazines- we are very 
excited about working and growing with 
this respected company. 

What does this mean to you as an INFO 

reader? Well, first of all, for those of you 
who are not yet subscribers, it's going to be 
a whole lot easier finding INFO now, since 
we'll be in thousands of new local outlets. 
With better cash flow and circulation, we'll 
be able to attract even more quality writers 
and artists to enhance the pages of each 
issue, and we'll be able to add more color 
and put more goodies between the covers 
every two months. It also means that we 
will (have to) be more regular , and we 
know that will be welcome news to many 
of you. 

Our "World Debut" also has us cooking up 
the best issue of INFO you've ever seen! 
We're having lots of fun putting it 
together, and we think you'll really enjoy 
it! Among other things, there will be a 
nostalgic look back at INFO's origins (how 
many of you have ever seen a copy of the 
Cyborg Gazetlel), an interview with Anne 
Westfall, a special edition of C.HVM.P, 
magazine, an absolutely exclusive review of 
a new piece of Commodore hardware 
(which even the competition hasn't caught 
wind of), and lots of reviews, all new Erg- 
cards, & all the regular columns and 
departments as well (plus a few surprises!) 
All in all, we can hardly wait. In the mean- 
time, enjoy your copy of the product 
roundup, the industry's most compre- 
hensive buyer's guide to Commodore and 
Amiga products!

"You are in command of Novenia's last 
Airborne Ground Attack Vehicle 
(AGAV), with limited weaponry and 
fuel, with no apparent means of 
replenishment." Starglider is reminiscent 
of the earlier arcade hits Star Wars & 
Battle Zo/2^,with wire -frame targets on a 
jet7black background (but with better 
action, detail, and controls). Not as 
good (or as complicated) as their hit 
Elite, but plenty of fun. Features fast 
"missile window mode (ala Arctic Fox ). 
a 64-page novella, large color technical 
poster of the AGAV, and quick 
reference card. -BD

This is a snappy arcade-style sci-fi shoot- 
em-up with tasty graphics & effects, and 
very fast, hair-trigger action. Zaxxon- 
style fly, dodge, and shoot. Successive 
waves of enemy craft get more tenacious 
and harder to hit, with varying 
formations and increasingly evasiye 
maneuvers. Another polished product in 
the recent wave of Euro-look arcade 
games from Mindscape. -BD

BARD'S TALE 
Electronic Arts 
1820 Gateway Drive 
San Mateo, CA 94404 

Bard's Tale on the Amiga is, as you 
might expect, vastly faster, prettier, and 
easier to play than any of the popular 8- 
bit versions. In spite of all the good- 
looking graphics, the quick pace, and the 
convenience of the user interface, I 
personally find this whole genre wearing 
a bit thin (dwarf or elf, monster swings, 
3 hit points of damage, 2 pieces of gold, 
etc., etc., etc.)^ There is an underlying 
monotony that these dungeon games 
share with flipping a coin. If youVe 
into Middle Earth gang fights, tho, this 
is one of the better ones. -BD

The best yet in what we expect (and 
hope) will be an ongoing evolution of 
Amiga Math-Graphics 'toys'. This latest 
incarnation of graphic Mandelbrot 
exploration software is NOT public 
domain, but the programmers are only 
asking either a $10 registration fee (you 
make your own copy from a friend's), or 
$15 for a new diskette with the latest 
update. IT'S WORTH IT!! 300 decimal 
place precision, infinite zoom and pan, 
IFF save and load, variable resolutions, 
colors, iterations, windows, cycling, 
boundaries- more features than most 
commercial titles! A MUST HAVE! -BD

Now this is my idea of an adventure 
game! Click on a door, it opens. 
Wonder if that picture on the wall is for 
atmosphere only?- click on it and if the 
program knows it as a distinct item, it is 
highlighted and can be examined, taken, 
or used, "open'' your wallet, and the 
contents are displayed graphically in a 
"wallet" window. "Open your gun, and 
see how many bullets are left in it! 
Almost everything you see in every 
scene is active to some extent! Endless 
delightful details, and easy control 
interface are the keynotes of this 
irresistable gumshoe classic. -BD

Hi! Just had to tell you how pleased I am 
with your magazine. I just received my 
first copy (ever) and it is by far the best 
publication for Commodore users; nothing 
else even comes close, and I buy all of 
them! Congratulations. And thanks to R,

Dear Info, I just wanted to say how much 
I enjoy your magazine. But a lot of your 
products were listed without ratings in 
issue #11. This was most apparent with 
Amiga products. Still, I always find your 
magazine a great joy to read. The wit and 
honesty is refreshing. I like Peggy 
Herrington^s Sound Advice column and 
hope there will be more articles discussing 
the Amiga's abilities in department form. 
The ethusiasm you have for the Amiga has 
convinced me to purchase one. Question- 
When running business programs, does the 
Amiga work slower than an IBM/PC-AT if 
it is using comparable Amiga programs? 

Sincerely-Deborah Brisman 
P.S. If you print this letter without 
correcting the grammar, typing errors, poor 
spelling, and awkward sentences, I will 
never read your magazine again, (unless 
you give me a pseudonymn!) 

/ hope you'll find many more of your favorite 
products rated in this Latest, Greatest Product 



\j 



RoundUp ever. Deb! And welcome to the ever- 
growing community of proud Amiga owners. To 
answer your AT question: it depends. Tve heard 
product developers claim they can write software 
faster on the Amiga than the AT because of the 
multitasking environment, I know that things like 
spreadsheet recalculation and word processing can 
be just as fast on the Amiga as on an AT, and 
the Amiga can run rings around an AT in any 
graphics or sound application. But it is also my 
understanding that disk operations are 
considerably faster on the AT, It really depends 
quite a bit on what you are doing, but we think 
the Amiga is a much better deai and it's 
definitely a much more exciting machine!

Hi guys. I would like your opinion on 
something. Berkeley Softworks has made 
the new GEOS Desktop 1.3 available for 
download on QLink but not the rest of the 
latest GEOS version. They have offered to 
provide complete GEOS updates on disk 
for $5.00 on request only. Berkeley's ads 
claim that updates would be provided for 
free and would be made available on 
QLink. They did this for the Update from 
1.0 to the Color versions 1.2. Now they're 
not. To add insult to injury Desktop L3 is 
a "Trojan Horse". If you have a broken 
backup copy of GEOS with the copy 
protection removed it will delete the boot 
files. Note also there was no warning of 
this "feature" except from angry users. How 
do you feel about this practice? 

We've had many letters about the "Trojan 
Horse*' version 1, 3 of GEOS, We checked with 
Berkeley Softworks and asked if this was an 
accidental occur ance or if it was, indeed, an 
intentional attempt to curb piracy of GEOS. They 
confirmed that it was and is intentional. Version 
]J will, when ported to work disks created with 
third -party copy-busting programs, wipe the disk 
boot sectors clean. There is no warning to that 
effect anywhere in the new packaging or 
documentation. Berkeley says they have "never 
endorsed" making work disks with a third-party 
copier, and that they see "no problem" for 
legitimate users of GEOS who have followed 
their own backup procedure, 

Berkeley's defense is their claim of having lost 
a great deal of business to software pirates. 
They point out that the "wiping" process doesn't 
remove any of your work, it just makes the disk 
unbootable, ICs too bad that there is no warning 
to that effect before it happens, (Of course, the 
really dumb thing about all this is that the 
publishers of copy software inform us that they 
have already worked out parameters to 
circumvent the update problem.) For now, the 
only safe thing you can do about GEOS 1,3 is to

With the introduction of the new A500 and 
A2000, Commodore has added a little sister and 
a big brother to the Amiga family tree. 

Both machines are functionally equivalent to 
the A 1000. They both use the 68000 cpu chip 
running at 7J4 MHz, just like the current 
Amiga, and they offer no new sound or graphics 
features. Commodore opted for 100% 
compatibility with the existing A 1000 rather 
than adding system enhancements like a 68010 
cpu chip or non-interlaced 640x400 graphics, as 
it was first rumored they might. 

What^ do these new computers offer, then? The 
A500 is more compact and less expensive than 
its predecessor, and the A2000 is an incredibly 
expandable open-architecture computer (and 
that means slots!).

You may have already read about the A2000 
the new high-end Amiga. Since the features of 
this machine have been reported elsewhere, we'll 
save our discussion of it *till last and delve first 
mto the details of the new A500. 

THE A500 

The Amiga 500 is internally identical to the 
Amiga 1000 (with a few exceptions we'll discuss 
m a minute). But it doesn't look anything like 
the Amiga you are used to. 

The A500 comes in a case very similar to that 
of the CI 28, It is thicker, however, because of 
the built-in standard Amiga 3.5" drive in the 
right-hand side of the case. In this aspect of its 
design the A500 has followed the lead of the 
Apple lie and numerous PC-compatible portable 
computers which similarly place the drive in the 
right side of the case. This configuration is 
compact and efficient and takes up less desk 
space than a separate drive would. 




\ik 



i^^SSfilii 



The rear connectors on the 500 have been 
changed to conform to the IBM standard. A500 
owners won't have to purchase custom Amiga 
cables to hook up modems and printers; they 
will be able to get serial and parallel cables off- 
the-shelf at any PC dealer. But they'll have 
problems trying to plug in a Digi-View video 
digitizer. Future Sound audio digitizer, or other 
peripheral designed specifically for the old 
Amiga ports. We assume that third party 
developers will quickly adapt their products to 
fit the new connectors. We're glad to see 
Commodore adopt the industry standard, even 
though it will mean some some headaches for 
developers and Amiga owners alike during the 
transition period. In the long run, it makes good 
sense. 




Back of A500 showing STANDARD ports! 



The A500 has stereo sound output jacks, a 12- 
bit RGB analog output port, and a monochrome 
(yes, monochrome) video output jack. Gone is 
the composite color video output jack of the 
A 1000. This positions the A500 more directly 
against the Atari 520ST with its RGB and 
monochrome outputs. We doubt that the 
monochrome output will see much use, but then 
neither did the somewhat fuzzy composite 
output of the A 1000. For those who are 
interested in using the A500 in home video 
work, Commodore says that either they or a 
third party will be coming out with an RGB- 
analog-to-composite-color adapter very soon 
after the ASOO's release. 

There is an Amiga expansion buss on the 500, 
but because of the right-hand built-in drive the 
buss is located on the A500's left side. This 
means that existing AlOOO expansion products 
will not plug in without some kind of adapter. 
For most users this won't be a problem; 
Commodore most likely expects those with 
heavy system expansion needs to buy a 1000 or 
2000. Commodore has already shown a prototype 
of a hard disk drive with built-in interface 
plugged into the A500 expansion buss, so the 
buss is definitely functional. It's good to see that 
Commodore included it, despite rumors to the 
contrary.

Much improved keyboard of A500. 



The keyboard is notably different from the 
AlOOO keyboard. First of all, it is not 
detachable. Like the CI 28 (and the Atari 
520ST), the A500 incorporates the keyboard into 
the case. The key layout is also improved 
considerably from that of the AlOOO. All the 
standard Amiga keys are here, but some have 
been moved and some have been added. The 
numeric keypad has been enhanced with a full 
set of operator keys to make it a "professional" 
numeric keypad. The cursor keypad has been 
separated from the main keyboard and put into 
a "T" configuration located between the main 
keyboard and the numeric keypad. Strangely 
enough, the keys on the A500 keypad have the 
fronts marked with IBM keyboard equivalents, 
in much the same manner as the C64 and CI 28 
mark the keyfronts with CBM graphics 
characters. This marking is an artifact of using

the same keyboard on the A500 and the A2000, 
since most 500 owners will never have the 
opportunity to use the IBM key equivalents 
(unless they operate a 5.25" drive with 
Transformer software or Commodore adapts the 
Sidecar to the A500's left-handed buss). To 
make those upgrading from 8-bit Commodore 
machines feel more at home, the left-Amiga key 
on the A500 has been relabeled so it resembles 
the familiar Commodore logo key on the C64 
and C128. (Functionally it is identical to the left- 
Amiga key.) Interestingly enough, in the 
prototype photos this key is still labeled as an 
Amiga key on the A2000. At least in the 
preliminary designs, this is the sole difference 
between the keyboards of the A500 and 
A2000** 




AS 00 main board II optional .5 MEG RAM board. 

The guts of the Amiga 500 have been 
optimized and trimmed down. There are a few 
LSI chips taking over the tasks of dozens of 
smaller chips, and Kickstart 1.2 is in a 256K 
ROM. This means the power-up sequence is 
now a simple process involving a single 
WorkBench or auto-startup disk. With the A500 
and A2000, BBS sysops and others operating 
unsupervised Amiga systems no longer need to 
worry about system power-downs. An auto-start 
disk in the internal drive will automatically 
reboot the system without a disk swap when 
power is restored to a downed Amiga 500 or 
2000. 

Early in the development of the new Amigas it 
had been proposed to make it possible to boot 
up with vl.l Kickstart in the drive to allow the 
machines to run vl.l applications. This RAM- 
overlay method would have cost some user 
memory, but it would have allowed A500 and 
A2000 owners to run some 1.2-incompatible 
software. In the release versions of these 



machines, however, that feature has not been 
implemented. The A500 and A2000 will only 
run applications under vl.2 of KickStart. Some 
older applications will have to be modified to be 
compatible with vl.2 before they can be run on 
the new machines. 




Underside of keyboard ehowtng RAM board socket. 



The 500 comes with 512K of RAM standard, 
twice the memory the A 1000 debuted with. This 
512K is all chip RAM, instantly accessible by 
the graphics and sound chips. For expansion, 
there is a cigarette-pack size port in the bottom 
of the case that accepts a new 512K RAM 
expander with built-in battery backed-up clock. 
This gives the A500 a total maximum potential 
of one megabyte of internal RAM. You can also 
add up to 8 megs of external RAM (for a total 
of 9 megabytes!) via the expansion buss 
connector and an appropriate expansion chassis. 




3.5" micro drive in right side of keyboard. 

The A501 internal 512K RAM expansion is 
not fast RAM, nor is it chip RAM; here at 
INFO, we like to call it Half-Fast RAM, It 
occupies high chip RAM address space, 
positioned just beyond the Agnes chip's ability 
to address it. This means that the second 512K 
of RAM cannot be used directly for graphics 
and sound, but it will still be slowed down

somewhat by intense graphics activity. While 
you won't get the full effect of 100% fast RAM 
with this expansion, for approximately $150 
you'll still be adding a lot of capacity to your 
A500 (including a battery backed-up system 
clock). Commodore says the A501 expansion 
unit will be available when the A500 is released. 
The external power supply of this unit is 
similar to the C128*s, only a little larger. It is 
capable of powering the A500 with A501 RAM 
expander and a single additional external 3.5" 
disk drive. The power supply is not capable of 
supplying power to more than one external 
drive. And if you add any equipment to the 
expansion buss, it will have to be externally 
powered. You can, however, add an external 
5.25" disk drive (with Transformer software) for 
MS-DOS applications since that drive comes 
with its own power supply. 
The A500 comes with the standard complement 
of accessories, including the introductory and 
Amiga BASIC manuals, and two disks containing 
WorkBench 1.2 and Amiga BASIC. (Remember, 
KickStart is in ROM in this machine, so you 
don't need a KickStart disk.) Suggested retail 
price of the A500 is $640, but Commodore 
expects most retailers to discount the machine to 
under $600. Commodore is rushing to get both 
new Amigas to market by summer, but the 2000 
is being given top priority. The 500 may not be 
available until June. 



THE A2000 

The A2000 is Commodore's open-architecture 
big brother to the Amiga 1000. It functions 
nearly identically to the 1000, and includes all 
of the internal trimming down and optimization 
of the A500 (including vl.2 of KickStart in 
ROM), but the A2000 is shipped with a full 
megabyte of RAM standard.* The battery- 
backed up clock is also standard on the A2000. 
The external parallel, serial, video, sound, and 
drive connectors are identical with those on the 
A500, and the keyboard layout is the same as 
that on the 500. The keyboard itself is 
detachable like the one on the A 1000. The 
keyboard connector has been changed and made 
sturdier. 

The case has about the same footprint as the 
A 1000, but it's taller to make headroom inside 
tor lots of add-on hardware. The chassis comes 
standard with one front-mounted 3.5" disk 
drive, with room to mount another 3.5" drive 
($200) beside it and a 5.25" drive ($300) below 




The A2000- Commodore's "tower of power"! 

it. (You can also add two additional external 3.5'' 
Amiga drives, and up to 3 external 5.25" MS- 
DOS drives.) Behind the internal drives is a 
hefty 200 watt power supply, the same size as 
the one in the IBM PC/AT. Why so big? 
Because, like the AT, the A2000 has lots of 
expansion slots.

The first products listed in each category are 
ose most highly rated by INFO. Five-star 
products come first, followed by four stars, 
three, etc. Unrated products appear last in 
alphabetical order, 

STILL NOT THERE? 

Even though this is the most comprehensive 
listing of Commodore products published 
anywhere, we don't list every product available 
for Commodore computers. If we did, you'd be 
buying a twenty dollar book, not a $3.95 
miagazinel - 



□lOfQ^Ql-ttaHiri 




In the first place, we periodically delete 
products that are no longer in production, even 
though some may still be available through 
closeout sales, mail-order specials, or trades with 
other Commodore owners. We try to keep the 
most important of these products in the 
RoundUp for at least awhile, and we label these 
as "No Longer In Production". If you are 
interested in INFO's comments about an older 
product we no longer list, we suggest you order 
a Product RoundUp back issue from our Back 
Issues Dept. (#1, #3, #8,and #11 are the 
available RoundUp issues.) 

Secondly, we don't list one-shot products from 
garage operations that are of obviously inferior 
quality (and weVe seen some losers!}. We figure 
we shouldn't make your life miserable by 
burdening you with these titles, nor should we 
raise the hopes of incompetent fast-buck garage 
entrepreneurs. On the other hand, we DO list 
many titles of excellent quality from sincere, 
competent, but underfunded Mom & Pop 
software companies, because their products 
deserve the exposure and a free listing in INFO 
is sometimes the only national attention they can 
afford. Our basic criterion is this: Is the product 
something our readers will want to know about? 

Thirdly, we don't list all the products available 
from all companies. We will sometimes even 
have one listing for a complete line of 
specialized software, something we often do for 
educational, engineering, or scientific titles. If 
you see something you like listed in the 
RoundUp, write the company for a full catalog. 

Lastly, if you are looking for CI 28 CP/M 
titles, you will find only those titles listed that 
(1) fill a gap in the library of available software 
for the CI 28, such as Ada and LISP language 
compilers, (2) are exceptionally useful CP/M 
utilities such as Write-Hand Man and XPIP, or 
(3) are specifically recommended by 
Commodore, such as dBase 11, Wordstar, and the 
Perfect series. 

COMMENTS 

We tag all the product entries with the initials 
of the person responsible for the comments. 
Check the masthead to see who goes with what 
initials. "St" means "stafP. If there are no 
initials, the comments are provided by the 
company, and may also contain some small 
observations or comments that we*ve picked up 
from a quick perusal. Many descriptions are 
short, but we've tried to include what we think 
might be pertinent when you make a purchasing 
decision, 

AVAILABLILITY 

We list some products that have been 
announced but are not yet in production, as well 
as some products that are no longer in 
production but may still be available from some 
sources. Check with the manufacturer or your 



local dealer before ordering any product listed 
in the RoundUp. And please do not try to order 
anything from us: we don't sell software or 
hardware, 

PRICING 

The prices we list are the latest known 
suggested retail prices, and are included only as 
a guideline. You can find many items for less at 
your local computer retail or discount store or 
by mail order. The prices on some items may 
have increased since our listing was written. In 
all cases, don't just send money to the 
manufacturer--call or write for availablility, 
pricing, and shipping charges first. 

COMPANIES 

Each product listing includes the name of the 
company which produces it. In some cases, it 
may be the name of an exclusive distributor. 
But it is always the company that consumers and 
dealers should contact for purchase information. 
A full directory of companies is printed at the 
end of the listings. 

RATINGS 

The one comment we receive most often about 
the RoundUp listings is ''Not enough products 
are rated!" We agree. Though we spend 
thousands of hours a year testing and rating 
software, our staff is small and most products 
require many hours of testing for a thorough 
and fair rating. But because you have asked for 
more ratings, we are willing to let you help us 
out. If you have used a product that you think 
should be rated, please feel free to send us your 
rating, along with a brief, RoundUp-type 
description of the product. Please include the 
manufacturers name. We'll use the information 
you provide to update some of the ratings in the 
tiext INFO Product RoundUp, and label them as 
"Reader Rated" products. Is that fair, or what? 
Send your RoundUp Ratings to:

MISTAKES 

As soon as a RoundUp issue hits the stands, 
we always get calls like "That company has been 
out of business for two months!", or "That's not 
the right price on that game!", or "How come 
'Gumby's Plastic Adventure' isn't listed? It's the 
greatest!" 

There is a very simple explanation for such 
errors and omissions. Almost 50% of the staff of 
INFO is composed of human beings. And, being 
mere Homo Sapiens, we make mistakes. If you 
catch one, we're sorry, and by all means please 
help us to correct it. 



Hope you enjoy the RoundUp!

two-player ve.rsion via modem. The graphics are OK, b 
nothing to write home about. I only played against the 
computer, but I can see that a human opponent would 
make the game much more interesting. Hard to recommend 
if you don t intend to play via modem.

Well, guy, fortunately for you we plan on 
having more RJ Mical columns in the future, just

Date: Saturday 17-Jan-87 17:33 est 

I just picked up the JAN/FEB issue of 
INFO and I must congratulate you on a 
wonderful issue. It's the ONLY magazine I 
read from cover to cover. About your 
editorial on Sysops: I had at one time 
Sysoped for PlayNET and they were from 
what I have seen or heard more giving to 
their Sysops than some, I was given free 
time during the time I worked plus 5 free 
hours a month. I frankly agree with you 
that most Sysops deserve a lot better and 
would like the trend to improve. 
Otherwise, can you say: STRIKE! I think 
your editorial comment has opened a can 
of worms for the networks... Hooray! 

David Martin 




Thanks, David. Most of the people we've talked 
to agree, including sysops online. We don't intend 
to let the issue die. -Mark & Benn

DUTIHINK. the Joneses with your C-128! 



In today's fast paced world, you've got to stay 
one step ahead, Whether you're a student or a 
teacher, a doctor or a lawyer, a writer or a 
salesperson, you face fierce competition. And 
these days, your competition is likely to have a 
16-bit computer with an outline processor 

Outline processing is the most powerful new 
thinking and writing tool invented. With over a 
dozen now available on 16-bit computers, this 
new kind of software is taking the personal 
computer wodd by storm. With OUT-THINK, 
you can experience this new dimension to 
writing on your Commodore 0-128 (with CP/M). 
Now, not only can you step ahead of the 
Joneses, you can OUT-THINK them, too. 

Whether you have to prepare reports, 
proposals, documentation, or school papers. 
OUT-THINK lets you brainstorm with ease and 
capture your fleeting ideas into an outline. Once 
in outline form, you can snap your thoughts 



Rave re^i&^s of OUT-THINK for the C-128 
are pouring in: 

Its a powerful and flexible tool for organiz- 
ing your ttJoughts. And the documentation 
is superb. 

- Compute Gazette^ July 19Q6 

This is one of the most useful and most used 
programs I own. It has become so indispen- 
sable to me that it is practically the only 
CP/M program that I am using, 

- TPUG Magazine, August 1986 

tn our humble opinion, OUT-THtNK Is one of 
the best reasons for booting up CP/M we've 
seen to date. 

- INFO Magazine, Nov. /Dec, 1986 



together like Tinker Toys — hooking one piece 
to another and moving the parts around with 
ease until you create the structure of the 
document you want, 

OUT-THINK practically teases new ideas from 
you. Add new paragraphs of text to elaborate on 
any point. Collapse the details from view to 
concentrate on your main points. Then, expand 
detailed portions of the outline as you need to. 
By collapsing and expanding, you can explore 
the inter-relationships of your ideas and see how 
they fit together. You can always see the forest 
without getting lost in the trees. 

And once you finish your document, you can 
get it out with a full complement of formatting , 
printing and file conversion options. From a two- 
page report to the Great American Novel, 
OUT-THINK will automatically number your 
sections and rotate your headers and footers 
with page numbers, and give you a Table of 
Contents to boot, 

OUT-THINK is brought to you by KAMASOFT. 
We pioneered outline processing and brought 
this amazing, new technology to CP/M com- 
puters. OUT-THINK is our newest oulliner- 
and the best ever. 

So, if you create and organize text in the 
course of your work, you owe it to yourself to get 
OUT-THtNK. Don't delay. See what all the 
excitement is about. Get your copy today.

From: Peter Spradling [70356,247] 

Subj: Jan/Feb 87 Editorial Online Cop 

To: INFO 70215,1034 

Your claims (about the CompuServe 
copyright policy- -INFO Editorial #12) 
appear to be unnecessarily inflammatory 
and are inaccurate. The change in CIS 
copyright policy came about as a result of 
an individual who set up a subscription 
BBS for Mac users. In essence he said^ 
"Don*t bother to join CIS and pay their 
fees. Join my BBS and get the same 
material for only $25/year." Then he logged 
onto CIS once a week and downloaded 
virtually all new material from the 
MacUsers forum and data libraries and 
posted it to his board. He had a virtual 
copy of MACUS on his board. CIS claims a 
copyright over the total of the material on 
their system but individual copyright 
remains with the original authors. In other 
words, if one copies everything, it violates 
CIS copyright. If one copies some 
programs, one must only observe the 
restrictions for distribution placed on these 
programs by their writers. This was upheld 
in a court case arising out of the above 
example. One can copy individual programs 
from CIS for their own use and even use 
them to make money for themselves IF that 
does not violate the INDIVIDUAL 
AUTHOR'S copyright. This is not the old 
"How to Charge People For Air" ploy. CIS 
would cease to exist if people could rip it 
off in such a blatant fashion. You appear 
to be prejudiced against CIS because it is a 
large and successful business. It is 
providing us all with a service which we 
feel is valuable enough to pay for or it 
would not be successful. You owe your 
readers an apology for the perpetuation of 
a misunderstanding. Next time check the 
facts first. Generally INFO is a good 
magazine. I hope you will keep the caliber 
up to its past level. Pete 

The policy you have Just stated is not the same 
one that CompuServe spokesperson Rich Baker 
outlined in the November 1986 issue of 
COMPUTE! (We have tried repeatedly to contact 
Mr, Baker, but he has not returned our calls.) 
What he said was pretty ambiguous, mostly

There are slots for everything in the 2000. 
There is a single video slot which will accept 
anything from a video digitizer card to a 
genlock card. The 2000 has the same built-in 
RGB analog and monochrome composite output 
connectors as the A500, but its video capabilities 
are almost limitless with the proper card 
installed in the video slot. Putting together a 
system with broadcast-quality video will be no 
problem on the A2000. Like the A500, there is 
no composite color video output jack, but a 
promised NTSC video card will offer much 
cleaner broadcast-quality video output for 
around $100. For those who are disappointed 
that the A2000 still uses interlaced 640x400 
video, there is the possibility of eventually 
adding a non-interlace 640x400 or even higher 
resolution video card. For those who want more 
solid hi-res video now, Commodore will be 
selling a $500 long-persistence RGB analog 
monitor. This monitor will not be ready by the 
launch of the new machines, but should be 
available later this year.

The motherboard also features a dedicated cpu 
slot. This slot provides access to all the system 
cpu signals, and this is where you plug in a 
coprocessor board. Commodore has already 
demoed a 14 MHz 68020 board running in this 
slot. This board is a modification of Computer 
Software Associates' existing 68020 board which 
is now available as a part of their A 1000 Turbo 
Amiga expander. CSA says that the plug-in 
A2000 version will be available from them at 
the time of the A2000's launch. The price will 
be $1480, the same as their current 68020 board. 
Also available from CSA at launch time will be 
two different 32-bit memory boards and a SCSI 
controller card. 



The A2000 also has between 3 and 5 Amiga 
expansion slots, depending on how you use the 
system. (More on how this works in a moment.) 
These slots can be used for any Amiga 
expansion purpose, including additional memory 
(up to 9 megabytes total), adding hard disk 
drive controllers, etc. Commodore has a hard 
drive controller board capable of driving two ST- 
506 hard disk drives and up to seven SCSI 
drives. The board even has a Macintosh.Plus- 
compatible hard drive connector in addition to 
the standard SCSI connector so you can plug in 
Mac Plus hard drives off-the-shelf! The A2094 
hard drive controller board will be available at 
launch for around $350. Commodore will offer 
several memory expansion cards for the A2000 
eventually, but at launch the only one available 
will be the A2050 2-megabyte card for $500. 
We expect enterprising third parties to modify 
their existing cards for the A2000 in short 
order. C Ltd, CSA, and others have indicated 
they are converting existing cards now, and 
have other A2000-specific projects in the works.

Lots of slots... 

The 2000 also has a 3 to 4-slot IBM/XT-AT 
compatible buss, again depending on how you 
configure the system. Here's how it works: 

There are actually 7 slots in the A2000. Two 
are IBM/PC-XT slots. These 2 slots also have 
the traces available on the PC board to convert 
them into IBM/PC-AT slots, but to do so you 
have to solder an additional connector onto each. 
Commodore says the slots were done this way 
because some PC/XT cards that Amiga 2000 
owners might want to use hang down onto the 
pc board in such a way that they would be 
unusable if the AT connectors were included. 
As we said, if you need AT slots, you can easily 
solder the additional connectors onto the pc 
board traces. 



NT 



^ftiiJ!iniTiiifnnirw 



iTWtiwrwTfy^ 



^^ 



Two of the PC slots are bridge slots. These 
slots cross over to two slots on the Amiga buss. 
Thus these two slots can be IBM/PC-XT slots, 
IBM/PC-AT slots (because they do have the AT 
connectors soldered in) or Amiga slots. If you 
plan to use the IBM/PC-XT capabilities of the 
A2000 at all, however, one of these two slots 
will be taken up with the A2088 Bridge Card. 
This card must occupy one of the two bridge 
slots, as it provides the only way of 
communicating with the IBM buss. Without a 
Bridge card, the Amiga is not even physically 
connected to the PC card buss.*** All 
connections are through the Bridge card; more 
on this card later. This leaves one bridge slot 
free, which can be occupied by another bridge- 
type application (as yet none have been 
specifically proposed), an IBM/PC-XT card, an 
IBM/PC-AT card, or an Amiga card. 

Besides the two bridge slots, there are three 
Amiga-only expansion slots. To bring it all 
together, in an Amiga-only system you would 
have five Amiga expansion slots, and the PC 
expansion slots would be unused. With a Bridge 
card installed, you would have- three Amiga 
slots, one bridge slot occupied by the A2088, 
two IBM/PC-XT slots (upgradable to AT slots 
with additional connectors soldered in), and one 
slot that could be used as an IBM/PC-XT, 
IBM/PC-AT, Amiga, or bridge slot. Is that 
clear? Don't worry, it confuses almost everyone. 
Suffice it to say that this is one very versatile 
system. 

THE BRIDGE CARD 

The $500 Bridge card is essentially an IBM/PC- 
XT on-a-card. It contains a 4.77 MHz 8088 cpu 
chip, an empty socket for an 8087 math co- 
processor chip, 512K of IBM/PC memory, 128K 
of scratchpad, display, and dual-port RAM, 
VLSI communications and control chips, a 
floppy disk controller chip, and the Janus 
operating system in ROM. Though it has been 
widely demoed with version 2.x of MS-DOS, 
Commodore says the board will ship with MS- 
DOS version 3.2. The operating system not only 
supports full IBM/PC-XT operation, but 
communications between the PC and the Amiga 
sides of the A2000. The technology is similar to 



Amiga's Sidecar, but is more sophisticated. 
Among other things, it allows the PC side to 
access the Amiga's parallel port and keyboard, 
output to Amiga windows in monochrome and 
color graphics mode simultaneously, and even 
share a partitioned IBM/PC hard disk with the 
Amiga side of the machine. With 20-meg IBM 
hardcards selling below $400, adding a bridge 
card for $500 and a hardcard comes out as one 
of the least expensive ways of adding a hard 
disk drive to an Amiga system. (A properly 
partitioned IBM hardcard appears as device 
JHO: to AmigaDOS. The "J" stands for "Janus", 
after the two-faced Roman god.) 

The PC video output is interesting in that 
monochrome and color displays are supported 
simultaneously. Though the Bridge card is not 
multitasking, and can run only one application 
at a time, some software such as Lotus 1-2-3 
can use both screens simultaneously. Lotus can 
display a spreadsheet in the monochrome screen 
and a graph in the color screen, for example. 
Each PC screen resides in an independent 
window on the Amiga display screen, and each 
can be sized or scrolled to view the entire PC 
screen. Clicking on the window will expand it to 
full screen size without borders. 

Among the Janus operating system's 
capabilities is the ability to cut and paste text 
back and forth between PC and Amiga 
applications using the Amiga's clipboard device. 
The operating system includes primitives that 
will allow programmers to implement much 
more sophisticated applications, such as piping 
output between programs, or even using the 
8088 as a dedicated co-processor for Amiga 
applications without having to boot MS-DOS. 
The support routines for such applications are 
included in libraries on the boot disk. 

The system is powerful, but it has a few 
limitations. Booting up the system is said to take 
almost two minutes, since the boot software 
must run through auto-configuration tasks for 
all the cards in the PC and Amiga sides of the 
machine. This is a one-time annoyance on 
power-up, and should be no big deal. The PC's 
paltry sound output is not implemented (no 
great loss here). A more serious limitation is the 
PC's inability to access the Amiga mouse or 
serial ports. Software drivers are under

A^EW ANI^^AS 



CONT'D 



development to overcome these limitations, but 
in the meantime anyone wishing to do 
telecommunications with the PC side will need 
to invest in a PC-side serial or modem card. 

If you are not thrilled by the prospect of an 
IBM/PC-XT system, with its relatively slow 
system speed and limited memory, and want the 
advantages of an AT-compatible PC, 
Commodore says they are working on an A2286 
card, which will offer AT-compatibility with an 
80286 cpu. The availability date is uncertain. In 
the meantime, there is always the prospect of 
adding an 80286 accelerator card to the PC buss. 
In fact, an A2000 with a 68020 card, 8088- 
equipped Bridge Card, and an 80286 accelerator 
board would give you access to four powerful 
16/32 bit cpus, which should satisfy even the 
most jaded microcomputer power user! 



CONCLUSIONS 

Both of the new Amigas look good. The A500 
breaks the price/performance barrier that stood 
between the A 1000 and the masses. It offers an 
operating system in ROM, a built-in drive, an 
improved keyboard, a full 512K of RAM 
expandable to 1 meg internally, and both RGB 
and monochrome outputs. The reversal of the 
expansion buss is unfortunate, but I don't see 
how it could have been avoided given the 
physical layout of the machine, and I doubt that 
many users will need to even use it since the 
500 can have a full meg of RAM internally. 
And at least it's there! At a probable street price 
of S595 or less, I think Commodore will sell 
trainloads of A500s, and that can only be good. 
Even those who already have A 1000s will 
benefit from the added software development 
that such sales will generate. 

For $1495 the A2000 is the computing bargain 
of the century. Fully expandable to just short of 
a Cray II, the 2000 should satisfy all the power 
users who just weren't convinced that the A 1000 
was a powerful enough machine for them. With 
its potential for PC compatibility, many 
corporate and university buyers will now be 
allowed to buy the A2000, since many of them 
are constrained by internal policies to 



purchasing PCs or PC clones. This is a 
tremendous marketing advantage that should get 
the A2000 into almost every niche oi the 
computer marketplace. Though it does nothing 
more than the AlOOO does when you first take it 
out of the box, its open architecture and 
expandability make this a machine that will not 
become obsolete until well after the turn of the 
century. ..and maybe never! Even though there 
are those who will complain that the A2000 
should have had a 68010 or even a 68020 cpu, 
or non-interlace 640x400 video, or a full meg of 
chip RAM, or whatever, we think the wisdom 
of the 100%-compatible upgrade path will prove 
itself. And the video and cpu slots ensure that 
the end user can add these capabilities himself 
if he needs them. That is the beauty of the 
A2000; it can be a machine for absolutely 
everybody! 




FOOTNOTES 

*The original West German design of the A2000 
included only 512K of RAM standard. The 
Pennsylvania design has 1 megabyte. The units 
that have been demoed so far are West German 
machines with an additional 512K of true fast 
RAM installed in the cpu slot. By the time the 
A2000 ships to American markets in late April 
or May, all the units that reach retail stores 
should be US-designed units with the additional 
51 2K of Half -Fast RAM on the motherboard 
and the cpu slot free. Still, if you are planning 
on purchasing an early A2000 we'd advise you 
to check and make sure the cpu slot is empty If 
not, you will not be able to add a co-processor 
board later without sacrificing 512K of RAM. 

** The Commodore logo is also prominently 
displayed on the nameplate of each machine. 
The A500 has a tag similar to the CI 28 
nameplate directly below its deeply-etched 
AMIGA. The A2000 nameplate subtly declares 



NSHDttOIBhiiaHiri 



JhzsBQmiiimiy t^ 



Hr= 



UF 



™Tm™^ 



itself to be the "Commodore Amiga 2000". It 
looks like Commodore is no longer concerned 
about its "toy image" hurting the Amiga. To 
which we can only add: it's about time! 

*** There is absolutely nothing dictating that 
the IBM/PC buss has to be used as an IBM/PC, 
since the pins are not dedicated to specific 
functions (except for power and ground) until 
the bridge card is plugged in. With a custom 
bridge card and the proper adapters, the buss 
could potentially be used for Mac Plus cards, 
Apple II cards, or even a custom applications 
system. The possibilities are limited only by the 
imagination of the user. This "generic buss" may 
provide almost infinite staying power for the 
A2000. Now let's see: is there a Cray II buss 
standard? 



EPITAPH 

With the triumphant debut of Commodore's 
new Amigas^ it is only fitting that we observe a 
moment of silence for the demise of the 
birthplace of the Amiga. With the March 31 
closing of the Amiga plant in Los Gatos and the 
complete transfer of Amiga development to 
teams in West Chester and West Germany, the 
last of those who had the original Amiga dream 
are gone from Commodore's ranks. 

Such things happen often in business. The 
dreamers fall by the wayside and the marketing 
men and accountants take over. We must try to 
remember that without black ink on the bottom 
line, the dreams don't become reality at all. We 
only hope that those who remain to sell the 
machine that the dreamers created will retain a 
little bit of the dream in themselves. And we 
hope that the dreamers can derive some 
satisfaction from knowing that a part of their 
dream became reality, and that people are 
sharing in it.

noises about "protecting the work that is on 
CompuServe for the benefit of our customers" 
and such. But he did make it clear that CIS does 
NOT want to lose any money on downloads, and 
that anyone who wants to distribute ANYTHING 
downloaded from CIS has to make written 
application to them first to get permission. The 
truth of the matter is that CIS doesn't own those 
PD programs, and to claim copyright on them is 
ludicrous. And since the programs on CIS are in 
the public domain, then the guy who was 
downloading them (and paying CIS $6.00 a hour 
to do it just like everyone else) and passing them 
along to the public cheaper is an 
ENTREPRENEUR, not a thief. Nobody was paid 
or contracted to produce those programs for 
CompuServe, If CompuServe's claim is valid then 
they could also claim that if the Constitution of 
the United States were uploaded to their system 
(since it is also in the public domain) then CIS 
could copyright it. It's absurd. -Mark & Benn 

U.S. MAIL 

Dear INFO, 

I just wanted to say that the Amiga has, 
indeed, appeared on "Miami Vice". Being a 
fan of the show and the computer gave me 
some incentive to keep an eye out for its 
debut after reading in INFO that it would 
appear on the show. I have seen it twice. 
The first appearance and easiest to spot is 
the episode which uses a Jai-ali tournament 
as a backdrop. The Amiga is shown in the 
office of a fellow law enforcement officer. 
In another episode Crockett and Tubbs are 
shown using one, but it is not it's best 
angle. 

Johnny C. Kitchens 
Arlington TX 

Thanks Johnny, for resolving that burning 
question for us. We missed it, but maybe we'll 
spot it in the reruns, -Mark & Benn

WHAT SLUMP? 

Betty Taylor, Executive Editor of the ever-vigilent 

Computer and Software News trade newspaper, 
writing in a recent C&SN editorial, got downright 
incensed at the mainstream press's insistence that 
there is a "slump" in the personal computer industry. 
She rightly pointed out that the only thing that's 
down in the computer industry is the rate of growth. 
She says that most experts are predicting a 7-9% 
growth rate in the personal computing market in 
1987. She compares this to a 2% decrease in defense 
spending (called a "slowdown") and a 3% drop in the 
auto industry, referred to as a "slippage" by 
BusinessWeek magazine. If a 2% decrease is a 
"slowdown", and a 3% drop is a "slippage", how can a 
9% growth be a "slump"? I hope the folks at 
BusinessWeek read the Computer and Software News, 

RIP 

Many fine companies have bowed out of the biz 
since our last RoundUp six months ago. Among those 
who have disappeared from the listings are: 
The Micro Forge 

Tecmar (quit making Amiga products) 
The Guide To Computer Living 
Digital Engineering (which briefly made a C64 video 

digitizer) 
Datamost 
Quicksilva 

FS! Software (formerly French Silk) 
United Microware (makers of Motor Mania) 
Hippo Software 
Software Group (Commodore has decided not to 

release the Group-developed Enable series for the 

Amiga) 

Our best to all the employees of these companies as 
they seek their fortunes elsewhere. 

ACQUIRED 

Besides all the failures and foldings there are 
always a few companies which manage to get taken 
over by other companies, or at least sign "exclusive 
distribution agreements" with them. Among those to 
do so in the last few months are: 
Sierra On Line, whose products are now distributed 

by Electronic Arts 
Game Designers Workshop, now a part of EA*s 

"Affiliated Labels" program. 
Handic, whose products are now distributed in the 

U.S. by Scan-Am. 
Lattice, publishers of C for the Amiga, has been 

acquired by its IBM mainframe licensee SAS 

Institute (which just goes to show you where the 

real software money is made). 

Creative Software, acquired by Activision. 
Batteries Included, purchased by EA.

THEY HAVE TROUBLES, TOO 



Lest you think Commodore computers are the only 
ones with problems, consider these facts: 

Early models of the IBM/PC had ROM bugs that 
resulted in a completely wrong answer anytime you 
multiplied two numbers together. 

Some Macintosh users groups report up to 1/3 of 
their members burning out power supplies. The 
problem? A 125 degree F internal operating 
temperature and no fan. 

Even the most diehard Apple experts are calling 
Apple's claim of "90%" IIGS compatibility with He 
software a "pipe dream". There are considerable 
problems even running AppleWorks, the most popular 
Apple He program. 

The IIGS also had chip bugs that resulted in 
random images appearing on the video screen. Apple 
waited until the first batch of machines had already 
been shipped to correct the problem because it was 
"just a cosmetic defect". 

Atari ST BASIC stores numbers in just sixteen bits 
internally, so internal rounding errors oftentimes 
cause a PEEK or POKE to a memory location to be 
off by a considerable margin. 

LASER 128 SUIT 

As Jimmy Durante used to say, "Everybody wants 
to get into the act!" Apple Computer has aggressively 
fought to keep competitors from making and 
marketing clones of their Apple II and Macintosh 
computer lines for years. One of their biggest 
settlements was a $2.5 million judgement against 
Franklin Computers, until recently the most visible of 
the Apple II clonemakers. Apple also has action 
pending against Video Technology Computers, 
marketers of the inexpensive Laser 128 Apple Ile/c 
clone. In a surprising turnaround, Franklin has now 
also filed suit against Video Technology, claiming 
that the Laser 128 ROM also violates iheir patents 
and copyrights. The suit awaits its final outcome; 
sales of the Laser 128 are so strong that it continues 
to be in very short supply. 

In the meantime, Commodore is selling their 
computers so inexpensively that nobody can afford to 
clone them. 

COMMODORE STOCK HIGHER 

Wall Street is expressing new confidence in 
Commodore; CBM stock was up to $13.00 a share in 
late January, compared to a low of $4.75 last year. 
The 30-day price trend was two and a half times 
greater than the rise in Apple stock prices over the 
same period, a month in which IBM stock fell, (If 
you'd listened to us last spring, you might be a 
millionaire now!)

LOCK STEPS DOWN 

Robert Lock, longtime Editor-in-Chief and 
"Founder" of COMPUTE! and COMPUTErs Gazette, 
has turned over the helm of those two magazines to 
former Senior Editor Richard Mansfield. Lock will 
continue serving Compute! Publications in some 
unspecified capacity. 

NEW FOR ADVENTURERS 

A couple of interesting items have crossed my desk 
recently that will be of interest to diehard adventure 

gamers. 

Questbusters is a well-established monthly 
newsletter for computer adventure gamers. The latest 
issue contains twelve pages of hints, tips, and reviews 
of computer adventures. $16/yr from: Questbusters, 
202 Elgin Ct., Wayne PA 19087. 

Dr. Evil Laboratories (that's the name, honest!) is 
comprised of a group of enterprising college students 
who have developed an adventure authoring system 
for the C64 called Imagery! For a measly ten bucks 
you get the adventuring system, a manual, a sample 
adventure game, and a one-year subscription to their 
quarterly newsletter, The Image. Send your money to 
Imagination, PO Box 190, St. Paul IN 47272. 

MSD GUIDE 

David Martin has come out with a reference guide 
for the mostly-orphaned MSD disk drives. The MSD 
Reference Guide is $20, a companion disk $6 more 
(include $3 shpg.) from David W. Martin, 1417 S. 
Heron Dr., Seabrook TX 77586. 

ATARI PC CLONES? 

Atari announced two powerful, low-cost IBM/PC 

clones at the recent CES show in Las Vegas. They 
said the units would be "shipping in March", but now 
it seems that they won't be officially available until 
"about August". It turns out that Atari has not yet 
negotiated a license with Digital Research for the 
GEM operating system they said they'd be shipping 
with the clones. Worse, they haven't applied for FCC 
approval, a process that can take months. Some Atari 
insiders are even saying that the machines don't exist 
at all, which has led many analysts to call the clones 
"vaporware". 

Industry speculation is that Atari's main motive in 
announcing the clones at CES was to hurt 
Commodore's announcement of its PC- 10- 1 and PC- 
10-2 IBM/PC-XT clones. Atari's dealers are 
extremely upset about the delay, claiming that the 
announcement ironically hurt sales of Atari's own ST 
computers.

3RD PARTY GEOS SUPPORT 



■^ 



Despite Berkeley's claims that "many" third parties 
are developing GEOS applications, weVe only seen 
four GEOS products from third parties so far, and 
two of those are books. 

Abacus is selling a $19.95 German volume called 
GEOS Inside and Out, and promises another tome 
called GEOS Tricks and Tips Real Soon Now, 

How To Get The Most Out Of GEOS from Midnite 
Press features routines for graphics and text file 
conversions. It is $14,95 and has a companion disk 
available for $9.95. 

Bantam's official GEOS Programmers Guide is now 
out. $19.95 for this all-machine-language reference 
work. 

All three volumes cover GEOS only through version 
1.2. 

The only stand-alone GEOS application weVe seen 
so far is a disk from Myth Conceptions containing 
two utilities, GeoFont and The Pattern Editor, for 
$19.95. The first is a versatile font editor, and the 
pattern editor runs as a desk accessory so you can 
call it up and interactively edit fill patterns from 
within GeoPaint. Very handy! 

MORE AMIGA PD 

Last time we reported on some excellent PD 
software available from Chiron Conceptions. The 
latest batch of disks from Chiron includes even more 
goodies, such as the fantastic Juggler 3D graphics 
demo. You've probably seen this at your dealer by 
now. It's the most mind-blowing piece of animation 
we've ever seen on any personal computer. Also in 
the latest batch was a PD Modula 2 Compiler, yet 
another Mandelbrot Generator, this one by Tom 
Wilcox, with excellent color controls and 
exceptionally clear detail, more tutorials and games, 
and Jay Miner's IFF slides diagramming the internals 
of the Amiga. At $5.95 each, these are an excellent 
value, and much cheaper than downloading the same 
stuff, 

MIMIC SPARTAN UPDATE 





In response to our review and feedback from 
endusers. Mimic Systems has stopped shipping the 
Spartan Apple II emulator with the "Frankenstein" 
drive board. That board, which converted a 1541 into 
a pseudo-Apple drive, was the weak link in an 
otherwise surprisingly adequate system. They are now 
shipping the Spartan with an Apple-compatible drive 
instead, and have managed to do so with only a 
minimal $30 price increase. The Spartan with drive is 
$329.95.

NEW MACS 

Apple will have two new Macs on the market soon. 
About the time you read this they will be releasing 
the Macintosh SE, which is essentially a 10% faster 
Mac Plus with a new mouse, new keyboard, and an 
outboard connector for an external monitor so you 
can have a display large enough to actually see. There 
are rumors that Apple has built color support into the 
new ROMs, but will not supply the unit with a color 
monitor. It will have an IBM/PC-XT add-on board 
as an option. The Macintosh II, slated for April 
release, is the long-awaited open-architecture Mac, 
with a large box and slots. It will have an optional 
IBM/PC-AT add-on board and optional RGB color 
capability. 

BALLY/AMIGA DEAL 

In a move destined to vastly improve the Amiga's 
image in the microcomputer industry, Commodore 
has inked a deal with Bally Manu-facturing to 
provide Amiga graphics technology for the next 
generation of commercial coin-op videogames. 
Chicago-based Bally is the premier U.S. producer of 
quality videogames and video gambling machines. 

Commodore will supply Amiga-based proprie-tary 
graphics boards and technical assistance to Bally. In 
return, Commodore/Amiga will obtain computer 
software license rights to the games that Bally 
produces. 

Bally's CEO Roger Keesee says, "The Amiga 
system.. .will permit us to build a wide range of 
products having outstanding graphics capabili-ties." 

Bally introduced their first Amiga-technology 
videogame, Moonquake, at the Amusement Coin 
Expo in New Orleans the third week of March. 

NICE TITLE 

I haven't seen the game, but Political B,S, gets my 
vote for best game title so far this year. Believe it or 
not, this is an educational game, with over 1000 
questions based on the U.S, Constitution. B.S.(which 
stands for Bureaucratic System) is for the C64. SI 9.95 
from Free Spirit Software. 

COMMODORE IN THE HOME 

In spite of Commodore's lack of promotion, one in 

four homes with a personal computer still own a 
Commodore. Despite Atari's recent push with both 8- 
bit and 16-bit machines, the influx of inexpensive 
IBM/PC clones, and Apple's introduction of new 
models of the Macintosh and Apple II, Commodore is 
still outselling any other brand in the home market.

LOS GATOS CLOSING 

When the lease is up on the Amiga plant In Los 
Gates the end of March, Commodore- Amiga will 
close its doors in California. It marks the end of the 
West Coast Amiga era, and signals the departure of 
(almost?) everyone involved in the development of 
the original Amiga personal computer. The work on 
new Amigas and Amiga peripherals will be taken 
over completely by engineers in West Chester PA and 
in West Germany. 

GENLOCK. SIDECAR, ET. AL. 

The latest poop is that the Genlock is now available 
in limited quantities for a suggested retail of $195. 
No Sidecars on the street as of this writing, though 
Commodore says all the paperwork is back from the 
FCC. The current story is that the Sidecar software is 
being updated to the same version as that included 
with the new A2000, which has the Sidecar built in. 
Contacts at Commodore say that the A2000 will 
debut before the U.S. Sidecar, 

On the C64 front, there are still no 1764 RAM 
expanders available at presstime, though we finally 
found a 1351 mouse locally. 

68010 UPGRADE FOR AMIGA 

The only thing keeping you from plugging a 68010 
chip into your Amiga's 68000 socket (thus achieving 
an 8%-50% increase in speed, depending on the 
application) is a single instruction that is 
implemented differently on the 68010. Fortunately, 
versions of the Amiga operating system since Vl.l 
directly support the 68010 and cirumvent the 
problem. If you are interested in making the 
modification yourself, we suggest you check in with 
the appropriate Amiga guru at your local Amiga 
users* group, or at least get on the networks and ask 
advice. Good luck! 

DALTON PULLS SOFTWARE 

B. Dalton Booksellers, one of the first chain stores 
to install software racks alongside bookracks, is 
phasing software sales out of their regular bookstores. 
B. Dalton, like many other businesses, has been 
acquired by another company. That company, which 
was formed specifically for the purpose of acquiring 
B. Dalton, is owned in part by the large book 
publisher Barnes & Noble, and they want B. Dalton 
"to go with more of a bookstore concept". B. Dalton's 
associated Software Etc. stores will not be effected by 
the change in policy, but the change will result in the 
loss of about 400 software racks nationwide.

1571/C128 ROM UPGRADES 

Right before Christmas Commodore released a 
major revision of the ROM chipsets for the C128 and 
1571 disk drive. These ROMs will be going into new 
production models of these machines, and we assume 
that anyone with the right contacts will be able to 
obtain upgrade ROMs from Commodore Service. 

The CI 28 ROMs must be replaced as a complete 
set. They include fixes for many problems in the 
operating system. BASIC 7.0 LIST, DELETE, 
RENUMBER, PLAY, PRINT USING, DOPEN, and 
other commands have been fixed to one degree or 
another. There is also a relatively major update to the 
way DMA is handled, which may be of importance 
to those who are planning on using the 1750 or 1700 
RAM expanders. You can easily tell if your CI 28 has 
the new ROMs; the powerup copyright notice says 
1986 instead of 1985. 

The 1571 ROM upgrade fixes the save-with-replace 
bug (finally!), BAM problems, REL file problems 
(including the side 2 bug), the 1541 -mode verify 
double-sided flag bug, burst load of locked files, and 
other problems. To identify this one, you may have 
to peek drive RAM location SCOOO, which is $D3 in 
the new ROM. 

If you are getting good performance from your 
CI 28 and 1571 now, there is really no reason to seek 
out replacement ROMs for your machines. But if you 
are having problems, by all means obtain replacement 
chips. We'd say from a look at the technical specs of 
the new chips that the 1571 ROM replacement will 
be of more lasting consequence than a CI 28 ROM 
upgrade. If you are contemplating buying a new 
CI 28 or 1571, you might want to run the tests we 
mentioned to make sure the unit you buy has the 
latest ROMs. 

GRAPHICS FOR C128 

New CI 28 titles are coming in steadily, if slowly, 
now, but Micro Aided Designs have come up with 
the fist title we've seen that actually requires a C128 
equipped with a 1750 RAM expander. This ambitious 
work is called Technological Highbred Integrated 
System, which creates the handy acronymn T.H.I.S. 
This lightpen-driven graphics/CAD/animation system 
is loaded with features. See the Product Roundup for 
details. 

POWER STORAGE 

For all of you incredible power users who feel 
restricted by mere 20 or 40 meg hard drives, C. Ltd 
has announced the availability of a 350 megabyte 
hard drive for the Amiga. The price is $6999.95, 
which is a lot of bread, but it works out to only 



$20/megabyte

CES CHICAGO 

The Consumer Electronics Show in Chicago always 
offers something of interest for Commodore 
computer owners. In spite of its name, this show is 
for dealers and distributors only. If you fit that 
description, the show this year is from May 30 
through June 2 at Chicago*s McCormick Place. The 
computers will be in the new McCormick North 
exhibition hall. Call 202-457-8700 for more info. 

SPRING COMDEX 

The spring Comdex show will overlap the CES 
show this year, which means that most manufacturers 
and showgoers will have to decide which show they 
want to attend. Comdex, which is much more 
business oriented than CES, will be held from June 1- 
4 in Atlanta. For more info, call 617-449-6600. 

NEW IBM UNCLONEABLE? 

IBM's new 80386-based personal computer might be 
based on new proprietory LSI Intel chips and a 
totally new operating system that will be upwardly 
file-compatible (but not program-compatible) with 
MS-DOS. This approach will make the new machines 
legally immune to cloning. The reason behind the 
change is that as of last year, the clonemakers moved 
ahead of IBM in PC sales, and are now as a group 
selling many more IBM-compatible machines than 
IBM is. 

IBM has already fallen technologically behind the 
clonemakers in many areas. Some companies are 
offering advanced graphics capabilities, faster 
operating systems, and integral hard drives for less 
than the price of a standard IBM/PC. Some 
clonemakers have even jumped the gun on IBM and 
introduced MS-DOS machines that already 
incorporate the more powerful 80386 Intel cpu chip. 

Many industry watchers say that the rumors of 
incompatibility are unlikely, and that IBM's new 
machines will still be MS-DOS compatible, but if the 
rumored incompatibility is true we have to ask: Who's 
going to buy them? 

CAMARADERIE 

Our hats are off to Electronic Arts. The first issue 
of their house magazine. Deluxe News, included 
plenty of articles about their own products, but also 
had features on NewTek's Digi-View and Digi-Paint 
and Mimetic's Soundscape series. These products can 
be used in conjunction with EA's products to give 
the user enhanced capabilities, and it's refreshing to 
see a company of EA's stature unafraid to send some 
consumer dollars the way of the competition.

MARAUDER II 

If you own an Amiga and don't have Marauder II 
from Discovery, you don't have one of the best tools 
an Amiga owner can have. It backs up all the Amiga 
titles to date in record time, and Discovery promises 
inexpensive updates to keep the program current. It's 
easy to use, powerful, and inexpensive ($39.95), and 
is not copy-protected itself (though it is random 
keyword protected). This is Good stuff! 

THINGS WE'D LIKE TO SEE 

--> This time, here are some Things We'd Like To 
See for Amiga Paint programs, most of which are 
features already incorporated into some of the best 
C64 paint programs: 

(1) An object grab function like the one on 
Picasso's Revenge for the C64. Grabbing objects just 
by clicking on them is much handier than outlining 
them. 

(2) A smoothing optimizer like the one in Billboard 
Maker. When enlarging a brush, this would smooth 
out the "jaggies". 

(3) Text reformatting as in GEOpaint. When you 
resize the text area, the text reformats to fit it. What 
a great feature! 

(4) Erase to edges like the Erase feature in Doodle!. 
This one is great for "hollowing out" filled shapes so 
you can recolor or pattern fill them. And repeating 
the process gives you a great "Op Art" effect! 

When you think about it, it's really amazing to see 
these functions from popular C64 paint programs not 
yet implemented on the Amiga. (And while adding 
these features, how about adding the ability to read 
downloaded Macintosh and Atari ST picture files? 
And why not include a set of standard PMS color 
palettes for those of us who want to do real-world 
printing and publishing color artwork?) 

--> How about a Space Invaders type shoot-em-up 
game for the C64 and/or Amiga with a built-in 
Object Editor so you could blast the Frustrating 
Object or Personage of your choice? Blast Happy

From the streets and back alleys, the darkened 
smoke-filled rooms, and the hidden byways and 
backroads of Commodoredom, here are the latest 
rumors... 

--> Commodore is said to have many internally- 
developed programs on hand that they are not 
going to sell. The major impediments seem to be 
time, money, and manpower to get the titles 
produced and out the door. Among the 
casualties is a C128 assembler/development 
system called DevPak, written by Fred Bowmen 
and Hedley Davis, two of the powers behind the 
C128's operating system. 

--> We keep hearing about a ROM for the CI 28 
called the Walrus. It's said to be the BASIC 8.0 
extension ROM, and is supposed to fit into the 
famous empty internal socket. To be available 
soon from a third party company... 
--> Folks are speculating that the Fat Agnes 
chip in the new A500 and A2000 (which is in a 
square 80-pin package) could be upgraded pretty 
easily to address a full megabyte of chip RAM 
for graphics and sound. The meg in the A2000 
and the 512K internal expansion RAM pak in 
the A500 actually occupy the correct addresses 
for additional chip RAM. How soon for a chip 
redesign? Probably not for quite awhile. 
--> AmigaWorld magazine is said to be going 
monthly this Fall provided the number of Amiga 
owners out there Justifies it, 

--> Acceptance of Commodore's Transformer 
IBM/PC emulator software has been so 
disappointing that they are "de-emphasizing" it 
and may not even ship it with future 5.25" 
Amiga drives. There is a chance that they may 
even okay the release of the software into the 
public domain. 

—> Commodore is said to have responded to 
Atari's inexpensive IBM/PC clone by showing a 
'cheap clone' of their own at the West German 
Hanover Faire. The PC-1 is said to offer two- 
speed 8088 processing, DOS 3.2, a single 5.25" 
drive, EGA graphics capability, built-in serial 
and parallel ports and more for only $595. 



TRUE FACTS 

Just the facts. Ma'am 

--> Commodore is closing down the original 

Amiga facility at Los Gatos, The staff had 
already been pared down to a skeleton crew. 
The doors close the end of March. 
--> Burned into the A2000's main board is the 
slogan: The Few, The Proud, The Remaining, 
followed by the initials of the entire develop- 
ment staff still employed by Commodore. The 
model number on the prototype board is 2500, 
but it will say 2000 on the final release board. 
--> The A500 board has the cryptic phrase 
Rock Lobster etched among its traces. This 
machine had the working name of B-52, and 
"Rock Lobster" is a song by the group the B- 
52s. 

--> Commodore has licensed the rights to the 
Postscript page description language. They are 
more concerned with being able to sublicense 
Postscript to software developers for the Amiga 
than in producing a laser printer of their own, 
though that would certainly seem to be an 
additional possibility. 

--> Atari's newly announced and as-yet- 
unavailable laser printer will have no brain of 
its own, which is how they will come up with a 
price tag of $1500. It will be driven by the ST, 
and since the ST is not multitasking, printing 
will be a stand-alone task which will take over 
the machine until it's done.

WINTER CES 

In January all the excitement was in Las 

Vegas, the site of the Winter Consumer 
Electronics Show. Nestled between the neon and 
the slot machines, the shows and the showgirls, 
were all the latest and greatest computerized 
electronic gizmos--beeping, flashing, and hoping 
to capture the attention of retailers, wholesalers, 
and the press. 

There have been bigger and better CES shows 
for home computing in the past, but this one 
featured many new and exciting products of 
interest to Commodore computerists. If 
anything, the Commodore excitement had built 
since the previous show, fueled by Commodore's 
business turnaround and the success of the 
Amiga. Here are some of the show's highlights: 

ATARI 

We always like to check out what Jack Tramiel 
and sons have up their sleeves, and the tricks at 
this show were up to the established standard. 
Atari announced that a $1500 laser printer and a 
$499 IBM/PC clone would be available "soon". 
(We have already heard, post-show, that these 
will be "delayed"> The laser printer has no 
brain of its own and will be driven directly by 
the ST, which is why it is priced so low. The 
PC clone will have built-in ports, EGA graphics 
capability, and optional 8 MHz speed, if and 
when it becomes available. Most observers are 
agreed that Atari announced the clone to draw 
the spotlight from Commodore's more expensive 
(but real) PC clones. 

They also announced a new Mega ST which 
will include one, two, or four megabytes of 
RAM, a blitter chip, a detachable keyboard, an 
expansion buss, a battery backed-up clock, and 
an integral 3.5" drive. It closely resembles a 
certain Commodore computer. Retail will be 
about $1500. 

Atari's booth was once again jammed with 
third-party developers showing software and 
hardware for Atari machines, and they were 
drawing huge crowds. One of the strangest items 
at CES was an incarnation of 3D LCD shutter 
glasses for the Atari ST from the folks at Antic 
Publishing. These hardwired glasses click on and 
off in sync with a video display to pass alternate 
stereo images to your eyes, delivering a clear 
color 3D video image to your visual cortex. A 
3D CAD system designed by Tom Hudson (who 
did Degas for the ST) comes with the glasses. 
This interesting system runs only on an Atari 
1040ST and will retail for under $200.

FISCHERTECHNIK 

Two new robot kits from Fischertechnik look 
intriguing. One is a three-axis robot arm, the 

other a flatbed plotter. The arm boasts a lifting 
capacity of 100 grams and accuracy to within 1 
mm. It is driven by four separate stepper motors 
and includes IR-detector positioning sensors. 
The plotter has an accuracy of 0.5 mm and 
looks as though it will accept up to 8.5"xir' 
sheets. Both come with a C64/C1 28-compatible 
interface and software. 

BERKELEY SOFTWORKS 

Berkeley was demonstrating several new GEOS 
titles as well as vl.3 of GEOS itself. GeoCalc 
(S49.95) is a 112x256 cell spreadsheet with 
windowing, variable column width, and many 
functions. GeoFile ($49.95) is a form-based filer 
which has you lay out your data on an 8.5"xH" 
virtual page; it will also print mailing labels. 
Writer's Workshop is a bundling of geoWrite 
v2.0 with geoMerge, a mail-merge utility, Text 
Grabber, which converts text files to GEOS 
format, and geoLaser, an Apple LaserWriter 
printer driver. GeoDex is an electronic address 
filer which can sort, autodial, and print mailing 
labels and phone lists. GeoPrint is a parallel 
printer cable with driver software. DeskPak 1 
bundles the Graphics Grabber graphics converter, 
an fcon Editor, Calendar, and Blackjack game. 
DeskPak 2 features the geoChart graphing 
utility, which will work with geoCalc files, and 
geoSpell spellchecker. 

PROGRESSIVE PERIPHERALS 

Besides Logistix, Progressive Peripherals was 
showing Superbase Personal for the Amiga. It's 
a powerful database manager, but we were 
disappointed that the programmable Superbase 
Professional isn't much closer to shipping. They 
also announced that they had picked up the 
distribution rights to Vizawrite for the Amiga 
and CI 28 and Vizastar for the CI 28. They did 
not pick up the rights to the C64 titles, and with 
Solid State Software out of business, I guess that 
leaves the U.S. temporarily without a source for 
Vizawrite 64 and Vizastar 64. Vizawrite for the 
Amiga ($149.95) looks like a winner, with many 
desktop-publishing type features.

FIREBIRD 

Firebird is showing more commitment to the 
Atari ST than most of its competitors and 
showed some ST-only titles at CES, but they're 
still managing to get some interesting 
Commodore 64 games out the door. Among 
them are Tracker ($39.95), a 3D adventure with 
artificially-intelligent opponents. Talking 
Teacher ($39,95), a superb introductory 
educational program with excellent graphics and 
speech, and the C64 version of Starglider 
($39.95), finally ported over from the ST. We 
were disappointed to find that the Amiga 
version of Starglider is not yet ready to show. 

EPYX 

Epyx introduced two new lines of 
entertainment software at CES. The Street 
Sports series, which features informal "back lot" 
play and both strong and weak "neighborhood" 
opponents, kicks off with Street Sports 
Basketball and Street Sports Baseball. The 
Masters Collection begins with Sub Battle 
Simulator, an in-depth (ouch!) simulation of 
U.S. submarine operations in WWII, with 60 
different missions. All are for the C64. Epyx is 
being cautious about Amiga introductions, with 
Temple of Apshai already out and World Games 
and Winter Games coming soon, 

ELECTRONIC ARTS 

EA again demonstrated its firm commitment to 
Commodore computers at CES, with new 
introductions and bargains on older titles for the 
C64/CI28 and the Amiga. EA announced they 
had taken over distribution of Sierra On-Line's 
software, which includes the King's Quest 
trilogy , Space Quest, Winnie The Pooh, and 
other titles for the C64. Coming soon from 
Sierra are Police Quest and a game based on 
Disney's The Black Cauldron. 

EA introduced a new title for the C64 called 
PHM Pegasus. The PHM stands for Patrol 
Hydrofoil Misslecraft. This Lucasfilm 
production features realistic 3D solid-filled 
animation and lots of action. Also on the C64 
monitors at the EA suite was Bards Tale II: The 
Destiny Knight. They have also moved some 
titles into their Software Classics series, which 
is priced at under $15. Included are Archon II,

Mind Mirror, Financial Cookbook, and several 
others. 

On the Amiga side, besides tooting the 
trumpets over the Deluxe series (some of which 
are being ported now to the Apple IIGS), EA 
was showing Earl Weaver Baseball, a split- 
screen, realistic simulation of professional 
baseball which includes a built-in baseball 
expert system incorporating the knowledge base 
of baseball manager Earl Weaver. This 
simulation, the first in the Sports Legends 
series, includes TV special effects like instant 
replays and slow motion, and even lets you 
build your own baseball stadiums! Also on the 
screens was the long-awaited Return to Atlantis, 
a long-term-involvement graphic adventure with 
great pictures. 

SONUS 

Sonus was showing a bunch of MIDI-control 
software at CES on various machines. What 
impressed us was that a C64 with a MIDI 
interface could do about as much with MIDI as 
an Atari 520ST. Many of the same programs 
were available for both machines, and the C64 
versions generally seemed to be holding their 
own for a lot less money. There were even more 
titles available for the C64 than for the ST, at 
least in Sonus' booth. 

COMMODORE 





Though it could be argued that the most 
exciting new Commodore products at CES were 
upstairs under armed guard out of public view 
(see our report on the new Amigas elsewhere in 
this issue), there was still plenty to see in the 
Commodore booth. 

As promised, the PC-10-1 and PC-10-2, 
CBM's IBM/PC clones, were there. The 
machines are far from exciting, with standard 
PC clock speed and only PC/XT compatibility, 
but they do include parallel and serial ports 
built-in, as well as monochrome and CGA- 
compatible graphics, all for one reasonable 
price. CBM is even throwing in a copy of 
Borland's popular Sidekick program. Though in 
short supply, you should be able to purchase a 
clone with a Commodore sticker on it by the 
time you read this. 

In another bit of old news, the C128-D was 
being shown, too. If you remember, Commodore 
originally showed this C128 in an Amiga-like 
case two years ago at CES, months before the

1764 RAM Expansion 




Commodore 1581 
3.5' Disk Drive 



introduction of the Amiga. The units, like the 
PC clones, have been available in Europe for 
some time, but will now finally be sold in the 
U.S. Commodore's UNIX machine was not in 
evidence, nor was their recently-announced 
PC/AT clone, both of which are European 
exclusives for the time being. 

They were saving all the hot new Amiga 
introductions for later, but at CES CBM 
introduced a couple of C64 products. First and 
foremost was the long-awaited 1764 RAM 
Expander. Its final configuration adds 256K of 
RAM to the C64, along with a beefier power 
supply for the 64, all for $129, Software 
included with the unit will allow it to be used as 
a RAM disk with both native C64 applications 
and with GEOS programs. The 1351 Mouse, 
which is already showing up in stores, is a $49 
upgrade of the old 1350. Where the 1350 
emulated a joystick, the 1351 provides you with 
a true proportional mouse that can optionally be 
configured as a joystick. Both are essential items 
for GEOS power users. Commodore also again 
showed the 1581 Disk Drive, an 800K 3.5" 
microfloppy drive for the C64/Ci28. This $400 
drive is not yet available, but will provide 
Amiga-capacity storage for the 8-bit 
Commodore machines. Though the format is not 
Amiga-compatible, we have heard that a third- 
party company is working on software to let the 
drive read Amiga diskettes. (More on this as it 
develops.) 

CONCLUSIONS 

The excitement level would have been higher 
at the Commodore booth had the new Amigas 
been in evidence on the main floor, but as it 
was there was plenty to keep Commodore 
watchers occupied at CES. Much of the third- 
party activity was centered on Commodore 
machines, including some incredible 3D 
animation software from Aegis for the Amiga 
(see sidebar). Things should be even more 
exciting in the new Computer Pavillion at CES 
in June. On to Chicago!

VideoScape 3D 

Easily the most fascinating thing I saw at the Winter CES was a 
videotape created with a prototype of VideoScape 3D, a new 
professional-grade graphics product being readied for June release 
by Aegis Development. 

Originally developed by Alan Hastings, VideoScape 3D allows 
Amiga users to create sophisticated 3D animations which look very 
much like the stuff you see on network television. Look at the 
sequence to the right: what you see are five still frames taken from 
a 5 to 10 second video done with VideoScape 3D. The scene starts 
with the classic Amiga *'Boing" ball which smoothly and rapidly 
flattens, rotates, recedes, and turns into a doughnut shape 
simultaneously! You have to see this to believe it- the pictures 
don't do it justice (and this is one of the simpler demos I saw). 

Unlike previous animation programs for the Amiga, 
VideoScape 3D works with solid-filled objects and simulated 
lighting sources. The large photo is from a longer video which has 
the "camera" view moving up, away, and around as the car pulls 
up and parks by the house (all the while maintaining the proper 
shadow and lighting effects and showing the hidden surfaces of 
these complex objects as they come in to view!) 

We will have a full review of VideoScape 3D when it is 
completed, but currently here are some of the product specs: 

Min. system: 512K Amiga and a video recorder with single-frame 
recording capability (flying erase heads) 

Ideal system: 1 MEG (or more) Amiga with 2 drives and a 3/4" or 
8mm video recorder with integral controller. 

Price: $199.95 

Compression techniques allow 3-5 seconds of animation from RAM without recording 
gear / uses 16 colors at a time from an total 256-color pallete and uses "on-the-fly" 
interpolation routine to access additional colors as needed / supports genlock 
(optional) / 2 minutes of animation reside on one disk / 30 seconds to 1 min. to 
generate original objects, 3-10 seconds to generate animation frames / animations are 
entirely created and written with text scripts and numeric coordinate entry- any text 
editor may be used for composition and editing / real-time previewing and editing 
allows testing effects before recording / controllable attributes include camera angle, 
light source, spectral reflection (chrome to dull look) multiple camera movements in 
scene, camera Eoom, second order smoothing (automatic camera transitions ) / any 
frame can be made into an iff picture / use any iff picture for foregrounds and 
backgrounds / 4 resolutions from 704 X 440 to 352 X 220 ( all overscan), single -step 
thru frames / optional wire-frame mode (play back in real-time from RAM) / 
automatic fractal surface-generation module and shape creation / nietamorphic 
transitions (object tweening). ~BD

MEGABYTES for AMIGA 

Avaliable now from Skyles Electric Works, 
We had so much fun developing the 256-K 
Memory for Amiga that we decided to offer 1 
Mbyte, and 2 Mbyte, Memories for Amiga. 
Consider, 1,048.576 or 2.097.152 bytes of 
memory designed to plug directly Into the right 
side of the Amiga. Each memory board offers 
full 86 pin buffered pass-thru with Addmem or 
Auto-conftg on turn on. We searched America 
for the best Amiga Memory and found It. 

1 Megabyte Amiga Memory .... S499.95* 

2 Megabyte Amiga Memory .... S949.95*
